We had a company event on the Odyssey, but there wasn't any work being done. Nothing but drinking, eating, and dancing. What an amazing time. We look forward to maybe booking yearly trips.

If you want to do a military discount, I suggest calling. If you book online, there is a 20% discount with an online code. If you book the window seat, you will get it.
